The story is about three young boys, Leche, Javi and Seba, of Montevideo trying to survive to the Sunday. They have lots of problems involving studies, girls, and the only thing that they do is drink, sleep or find strange people like a crazy delivery boy, a retarded, a drug addict and a philosophical video renter.

I'm from Uruguay and movies here are not so good. But this year five uruguayan films have been made. One of them beat a record in the box-office. But the best of that five films, was "25 Watts". With only 200.000 dollars, Rabella and Stoll (writers and directors of the film) wrote an exellent screenplay and direct the movie in a memorable way.
The story is about three boys that dont do nothing but they have lot problems in the job, with studies, and other things like that. The result is an exellent "opera-prima", a first prize in the Rotterdam Festival, a first prize of best opera-prima in the Coral Awards and a pre-nomination to the Goyas Awards.
For me the best uruguayan film of the year and the history.
